Farewell, Cynthia Lennon

I was on vacation when the sad news arrived that Cynthia Lennon had passed away.

Cynthia played a major role in John Lennon's life as muse, partner and mother of his son, Julian. Her memoirs provide key insights into his nature and the career with the Beatles and are both highly recommended.

The New York Times has an obituary here.

Documents detailing breakdown of John Lennon's first marriage up for auction

In news to make you glad you're not a celebrity: Legal documents detailing the demise of John and Cynthia Lennon's marriage is going public via an auction slated next month.
The previously unseen and unpublished five page dossier, which was drafted in 1968 by a solicitor dealing with the divorce of Lennon and Cynthia, includes a draft statement made by the Beatles member’s former housekeeper, Dorothy Jarlett.

It details the housekeeper’s account of what she saw while working for Lennon at his family home Kenwood in Weybridge, Surrey.
